Waiting on Wednesday...

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme where we basically whine about the books we want to read NOW. It's hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today's Waiting on Wednesday is one of my favourite genres - contemporary romance.

the premise: Do you ever wonder if the celebrity couples you see in the tabloids are actually real? Well, in Jenna and Jonah's Fauxmance, the romance between Charlie and Fielding, who play Jenna and Jonah on television, is definitely made up in order to raise ratings on their TV show. When the paparazzi exposes their scam, Charlie and Fielding disappear to get off the radar for a little bit. Naturally, they soon discover that there is more to their costar than they had first assumed.

why I'm dying to read it: I think it'll be a super fun, light read and I also love the trope when people pretend to date and then realize that they're not pretending after all. This seems to be the opposite though - they only realize they're head over heels once they stop pretending. Still, it should be a fun romance in amongst all the heavy dystopian releases this winter.

how long I have to wait: This one is being released February 1st.

while you're waiting check out: If you want to get a feel for the writing style, Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin also wrote Half-Life of Planets. If you're looking for other romances trying to stay out of the paparazzi, I'd recommend Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway about a girl whose ex-boyfriend writes a song about her. Suddenly Audrey is in the public eye and her every move is being scrutinized. I also love the romance in this one!
